Sexism in Narnia? Or Screwtape? Or amongst the Inklings? Many critics have labelled C.S. Lewis a sexist even a misogynist. Did the life and writing of the hugely popular author and professor betray attitudes that today are unacceptable even deplorable? The younger Lewis was criticized for a mysterious living arrangement with a woman but his later marriage to an American poet Joy Davidman became a celebrated love story. As a writer he along with J.R.R. Tolkien formed a legendary literary group the Inklings - but without women. In this collection of short essays opinion pieces and interviews academics and writers come together to investigate these accusations. They include Alister McGrath Randy Alcorn Monika Hilder Don W. King Kathy Keller Colin Duriez Crystal Hurd Jeanette Sears David C. Downing Malcolm Guite and Holly Ordway. The resulting work Women and C.S. Lewis provides broad and satisfying answers.
